Default My J10 story so far

Hopefully this is an okay place to post this, it says "all Jeep models welcome" though.

I've had this J10 for quite some time and never done a lot with it, because it's a hack previous restoration, coupled with some later hack modifications. It's quite frankly terrible. But I was sick of it sitting around and not making progress on it, so I figured I'd start taking regular stabs at fixing things on it.

Here's the first round of repairs/mods.


There will be more to follow.

Nice job on tank mounts. Always like seeing the older trucks brought back to life!

I had a 1981 Jeep J10 Stepside truck. Came with the 304 which I uh.. blew up. Then put a 360 into it and man that thing was NUTS.

I'm giving it my best shot at bringing it back. There's just soooo much hack going on.

The 360 really is a decent engine. They're just so cost prohibitive to build. I've got a parts truck with one in it, it might wind up making its way into this truck... Never know.
